The Samburu


The Samburu are a Masai-speaking tribe of some 30,000 persons living in the arid regions of northern Kenya. In an era of rapid change for Africa, this nomadic tribe clings to to its traditional way of life. This book examines their society and provides the first full published description of human life in the area. The author, a social anthropologist, spent more than 2 years among the Samburu, as an adopted member of one of their clans. He perceived how their values and attitudes are closely interwoven with a social system that resists change.
